“To see is to know. Not to see is to guess. We will not guess when it comes to your health.”
Having a dental x-ray performed is essential for your teeth. Even when you are brushing and flossing, sometimes dental issues can arise that are not visible to the naked eye. Some cavities can even form inside the tooth as opposed to outside of it. An x-ray can also be done to determine the cause of a dental issue such as a toothache. SS Dental can take dental x-rays in Plano whenever it is necessary.
It’s no surprise that dental technology has improved over the years. At SS Dental, every x-ray we take of our patients is all digital. Digital x-rays are much better than conventional x-rays in more ways than one. With digital x-rays, our experienced staff at SS Dental will insert sensors into your mouth to capture images of your teeth. The digital x-ray images go straight to a computer as opposed to conventional x-rays that took minutes to develop with chemicals and then viewed by a lightbox. Furthermore, when compared to conventional x-rays, digital x-ray images are higher in quality. Dr. Z is able to zoom in to digital x-rays on the computer to closely examine the problem area(s) and easily determine your best course of treatment. She can also display your x-rays on the large monitors to show you the problems she has detected in your teeth.
Finally, our x-ray system uses less radiation. Compared to the conventional method, digital x-rays use 90% less radiation. At the same time, it is considered the best option for those who may have some concerns about the radiation levels of x-ray systems.
